Cain Campaign Hits A Serious Bump

The state of the Herman Cain campaign is really not in a good place. I had some high hopes for this guy. I certainly hold him in higher regard than I do Romney. Not sure he was completely electable, but he had that certain something. I liked that he spoke plainly and from the heart. I liked his experience running a major company. I also liked that he did work in banking, although some balk at his job with the Kansas City Federal Reserve.

It was that plain spoken attitude that has more than likely done him in. One too many gaffes. In today’s media environment, you certainly cannot be a conservative candidate and hope to get away with speaking things that could be considered questionable.

  1. Rob, I agree that Herman Cain said a lot of the right things, but for me, there was something that wasn't right. I don't know what it was, and DH often commented on how he liked what he was hearing. He is a well spoken man. I think in our era, the left is on such high alert, that as a conservative politician you have to be walking on egg shells all the time. They are looking to pounce and it is so disheartening that everyone is under such a huge microscope. I have to follow my inner voice and even if I can't put my finger on it, I have to trust my instincts.
